Tyler School of Art is located on Temple University's main campus in Philadelphia, PA. The Fibers & Materials Studies Program offers both BFA and MFA degrees with a strong interdisciplinary approach toward traditional textile processes in combination with innovative contemporary techniques. The The Fibers & Materials Studies curriculum teaches technical skills to allow students to explore possibilities through loom and off-loom processes, dyeing and printing and digital output. The Fibers & Materials Studies courses encourage the use and experimentation of both traditional and non-traditional materials as diverse as Tyvek, latex rubber, wax, resin, and plant matter. Student work investigates two and three dimensions including wall pieces, wearables, indoor and outdoor sculptural installations, and book forms.
